Maybe. If you have the right kind of tuner for where you live, an antenna,you live close enough to a broadcaster, and have the right drivers correctly installed on your computer.
The aerial is the same as my TV aerial which does receive HD channels.
It depends of the
1 Provider Aerial Antenna DVB T/T2 (some TV cards can't do T2) or (analog in some countries not Europe) or Cable provider DVBC (or analog even in some parts of Europe)
2 Codec in use MPEG2 (those hardware mpeg2 tv cards) H264 or even some H265 for HD tv.
I my self still use analog tv PCI card for cable TV ("HD" too) on one of my pc (15 years old) connected to a Philips 32 inch Full HD monitor (not TV)and it still functions (because the isp provider doesent want to let go of the analog equipment (or probably many users still have those old TVs) and picture is almost the same as the digital counterpart of not HD (those 720x576) channels and sharp too. The HD ( and Full HD channels) its a different story they are much blurrier (probably because of downscaling and converting to analog) or the equipment they use) and lot of details are lost (obviously) but I still can watch those games and movies in my basement with the sign HD in the top corner
I do too on my PC since 10 years now (haven't changed the usb tuner when all chans went hd). Best software is dvbviewer pro (not free) if you're in europe. Windows media center could work for free i'm sure.
Never heard of Sichbo
